Commander of the Israeli Navy Vice-Admiral Eliezer Merom called on the world to take action to stop what he termed a "provocative and hateful" flotilla that is planning to sail to the Gaza Strip later this month.

"Allowing ships to sail to Gaza will enable Hamas, which is a radical terror organization operating under Iran, to arm itself with advanced weaponry and to threaten Israel with rockets and missiles," Merom said.

The navy chief invited the organization that seeks to transfer aid to Gaza to do so through Israeli ports or through Egypt in coordination with the relevant authorities.

"The goal of the organizers of the flotilla is to clash with soldiers and to create a media provocation and to delegitimize Israel," he stated.
